We Will Never Forget.

Please take a moment today and pray for those families who lost loved ones, the children who lost parents and those who stepped in to help who are now sick today.

I Will NEVER FORGET where I was at this moment 13 years ago today; like many other Americans.  I was working in the corporate world at the time and was on a conference call with an AON representative who was in Tower 1.  She told us she had to get off the conference call because a plane hit the tower.  We were thinking some small cargo plane had hit it and wasn’t too concerned.  We couldn’t believe our eyes when we turned on the news.  It was a day of disbelief and shock.

Months later we did talk with her again and she and her colleagues were injured trying to get out but they were alive.

Where were you on this day?

 

never forget

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you awesome MOM’s!

I hope you all enjoy your special day!  Here is a great poem that truly signifies to me what being a MOM is all about! :-)

BEFORE I WAS A MOM

Before I was a Mom;
I made and ate hot meals,
I had unstained clothing,
I brushed my hair every day,
I had quiet conversations on the phone,
I slept as late as I wanted and I slept all night long.

Before I was a Mom;
I cleaned my house each day,
I never tripped over toys or forgot lullabies,
I didn’t worry whether or not my plants were poisonous,
I had never been puked on, pooped on, spit on, chewed on, peed on, or
pinched by tiny fingers.

Before I was a Mom;
I never thought about immunizations,
I never held a screaming child so the doctors could give shots,
I never looked into teary eyes and cried,
I never felt my heart break into pieces when I couldn’t stop the hurt,
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.

Before I was a Mom;
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn’t want to put it down,
I never sat up late hours of the night watching a baby sleep,
I never got up in the middle of the night to make sure everything was okay,
I didn’t know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.

Before I was a Mom;
I had complete control of my mind, my thoughts and my body,
I didn’t know the feeling of having my heart outside of my body,
I didn’t know that having something so small could make me feel so
important,
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,
the wonderment, or the satisfaction of being a mom.

Before I was a Mom;
I never knew that something so small could effect my life so much,
I never knew that I could love someone so much,
I never knew I would love being a Mom,
I didn’t know the bond between a Mother and her child,
I didn’t know I was capable of feeling so much.

-Anonymous

You all are AWESOME :-)
